As one of the great Glowballists, I wouldn't expect any special favours from him.
Anyway, some sage advice from a forthright Yorkshireman:
EDIT: I don't entirely agree with him however. There are areas where we lack ambition and take an extremely small share of the value chain for superior knowledge and skills. A great example would be ARM. If ARM was run by Jobs, he would have been looking to see how he could cut out other people and use his technology to take the lion's share. Would you rather be ARM or Apple? It is just that they are happy with their blue sky research and working environment, decent wages...but they don't have the drive to take over the world. Nor do they have the social cohesiveness at their core where the middle classes provide work for those lower down the food chain - happier to keep their hands clean and see it done elsewhere.
